Contemporary, stylish and natural photography for weddings, events and parties by Chelmsford-based husband and wife team, Peter and Kerri

We are a husband and wife team with over 16 years of professional experience in photographing weddings, events and parties.

From weddings and formal events to family celebrations and office parties, we’ll capture all the atmosphere and emotion of your special occasion - telling a story through natural and beautiful images.

We are always professional and considerate, unobtrusive and discreet yet at the same time in the middle of the action - in the right place at the right time. Our friendly approach means that you and your guests will feel relaxed in front of the camera and we believe this shows in our images. Quite simply, we'll take beautiful and timeless photographs of you and the people you love.

To see examples of our natural style, visit our wedding photography gallery and event photography gallery.

We are based in Chelmsford, Essex but often work further afield. If you’re planning a wedding or special occasion we’d be pleased to hear from you.


Photography for weddings and events throughout Essex, including Chelmsford, Billericay, Braintree, Harlow, Wickford, Witham, Rayleigh, Brentwood, Southend-On-Sea, and more!


What our clients say...

We just wanted to thank you both for creating such lovely memories of our wedding day. The photos are really lovely, just what we wanted and we will treasure our album forever.

Beautifully Designed Wedding Albums

You have the option with all of our wedding packages to include your photos in a handmade, storybook album. The images are printed directly onto the page itself allowing us to create personalised layouts that tell the story of your wedding. Different cover styles are available in a variety of colours and finishes so that your album can match the colour scheme and style of your wedding. All albums come beautifully packaged in a smart presentation box.

Event and Party Photography

Milestone birthdays, family celebrations and anniversaries - along with christenings and bar mitzvahs - are once in a lifetime events that deserve to be photographed beautifully. With all your family and friends together this is the perfect opportunity for us to photograph your special occasion. We’ll capture all the little details, fun and atmosphere of your event through a mix of candid photographs and natural portraits - and when the dancing starts - we’ll be on the dance floor to capture that too!

Photography that captures all the party atmosphere

Pre Wed Photography

A relaxed pre-wed shoot in a location that is special to you, is a great way for us to get to know you before your wedding day. Essex is full of places that make a great backdrop for a pre-wed shoot, so if you're getting married, let us capture the love you share.
